Today before I left work I checked my coolant level ( which was fine) I noticed that I could squeeze the radiator hoses and cause coolant to flow into the overflow tank. So when I got home I decided to see how much pressure would be in the system by pulling the radiator cap and to my suprise I was able to pull the cap without it spewing everywhere! I am going to try the old cap that came with the radiator to see if the same thing can happen. But I do know that is mot suppose to be able to be done. If the original cap can do the same thing, does it sound like the neck to the radiator is bad? Obviously if the neck is bad then the radiator is.
